Mark Sanchez, PhD

Lecturer on History and Literature, Harvard University
Mark John Sanchez is a lecturer in History & Literature at Harvard University, where he teaches courses on the Cold War, migration and labor, and Asian American Studies. He received a PhD in History and Asian American Studies from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Sanchez is at work on a monograph focusing on the making of a transnational opposition to the Marcos dictatorship in the Philippines. It traces how anti-Marcos activists channeled human rights discourses, international law, and the global ecumenical movement to draw attention to the Marcos government's abuses. The monograph also shows the unanticipated but foundational influence that anti-Marcos politics had on the transnational Filipino press, nongovernmental organizations in the Philippines, and the project of Filipino American Studies.
